Rays' Longoria does DH duty a day after being hit by pitch
The third baseman got a break from playing the field in Friday night's game against the New York Yankees. He left Thursday night's game in Toronto in the eighth inning because of a bruise.
''Hopefully a day and he'll be back out there,'' Rays manager Kevin Cash said. ''But he got squared up pretty good in kind of an awkward spot.''
Tampa Bay made a series of moves Friday.
Left-handed reliever Jeff Beliveau was put on the 15-day disabled list because of a sore shoulder and outfielder Mikie Mahtook was optioned to Triple-A Durham. Left-hander C.J. Riefenhauser and infielder Ryan Brett were both recalled from Durham.
